To mark the long-awaited release of Academy Award®-winning director Martin Scorsese’s Silence in cinemas on New Year’s Day, the Japan Society is delighted to be running a competition to win a pair of tickets to see the film, a copy of the original book and a collection of five Oscar-winning DVDs (The Pianist, Apocalypse Now, The Last Emperor, The Deer Hunter and Aviator*).

Based on the acclaimed book by Shusaku Endo, Silence is an epic drama about the endurance of belief and power of the human spirit starring Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Liam Neeson.

Silence tells the story of two devout and reverent young Jesuit priests, Father Rodrigues and Father Garrpe, who, in the early 17th century, face the ultimate test of faith as they journey to Japan in search of their mentor, Father Ferreira, who travelled to Japan many years before and has now gone missing. Upon arrival in Japan, the two young priests discover a country in which Catholicism has been banned and where the new government is systematically eradicating any followers of the Christian faith; circumstances which test their beliefs to the limit as they search for the mysterious Father Ferreira.

To enter, simply email your name to info@japansociety.org.uk, with ‘Silence’ in the subject line, by midnight 4 January. The winner will be chosen at random and notified on 5 January.
